"Lilith, you need to settle down. You're getting old, and you need to pass on the pureblood line."
"Actually mum, I'm not even twenty five and people have children well into their forties so I think I'm fine."
"Your father was thinking of arranging something between yourself and his cousin's wife's brother. He's single and wealthy..."
"Er, and like fifty, no thanks."
"Well, if you can't find someone soon we will have to sort out something."
"What if I want to marry for love?"
"Then fall in love soon."
After this conversation, Lilith left her family home stewing. She knew she would never meet someone like Josie again, nor did she really want to. It still pained her to think of her, so she tried to keep it out of her mind as much as possible. As long as she could lose herself in her books, Lilith would be fine. But as her mother had so kindly reminded her, there were expectations laden upon her. Perhaps she hadn't joined St Mungo's or the ministry as her parents had wished. She had carved her own path in that way. But Lilith had a nasty feeling her mother wouldn't let her remain unmarried for long.
Lilith got thinking, how could she pull the wool over her mothers eyes and remain unattached? She had spent quite a long time thinking, perusing her memory and watching people from behind her books in various bars and pubs. She pegged one man in particular who was finely dressed and didn't seem as if he was too interested in any long term sort of involvement. Lilith spoke with him briefly before suggesting they meet up in Bristol. If things went well, Lilith could bring him home to meet her mother in nearby Bath. If not, well Bristol was quite a large city in itself.
At the appointed time, Lilith was waiting outside the castle. It was the most recognisable point in the city. She was a bit nervous about the upcoming proposition, but as long as it would make her mother happy, she could live in peace.
